New WellChild Ambassadors: Welcome to Dick and Dom!

Posted on the 3rd November 2017

We are delighted to welcome long term supporters Dick and Dom as official WellChild Ambassadors. The popular comedy duo have been on children’s television for over 20 years starring in shows like Dick and Dom in da Bungalow, Diddy Dick and Dom, Are You Smarter than a 10 Year Old? and Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom to name a few, winning numerous BAFTAs along the way. They also hosted The Sunday Morning Show on BBC Radio 1.

Dick and Dom were first introduced to the charity in 2007 when they attended the WellChild Awards and have been regular supporters at the event ever since. We were delighted to have them hosting the evening in 2016.

Following their attendance at this year’s WellChild Awards, Dick explained what the event means to them:

We come every single year because it’s such an inspirational evening seeing some of the winners who just have such amazing stories, it makes you proud to be here!

Colin Dyer, Chief Executive said:

“WellChild are very lucky to have been supported by Dick and Dom for the past 10 years and we are thrilled to have them on board as official Ambassadors. Their enthusiasm and passion help to play a vital role in raising awareness of our work and the needs of the children, young people and families we support. Thanks to their ongoing commitment and support, we can continue to raise vital funds we need to further our important work across the UK.”

Our Ambassadors – What they do for us

WellChild’s Celebrity Ambassadors speak about our work at public events, introduce us to new supporters and support our campaigns which increase awareness of WellChild and how we can help the thousands more children who need us. Although we have been helping seriously ill children for over 30 years, some people are still unaware of the scope of work we do. We find it inspirational that our Patron, Ambassadors and supporters are prepared to use their time to help spread the word.
